    Meanwhile, Greg spent some money for an ad in the Olympian. I will be coughing up some $ to offset the expense.

    March 18, 2013

    • Big G.

      Gene, I appreciate that! I spent $24.25 on the ad in the Olympian. Someone gave me $5.00 at the sale, I apologize, I don't remember who it was.

    I stopped by to check things out. While it might not have been as well attended as many would have liked, I think it is a great idea and will need to be done a time or two more to gain some traction. I also think it was a great opportunity to meet and chat with fellow photographers.

    • Big G.

      I heard both comments numerous times - "wish there would have been more people, but I really enjoyed hanging out with everyone."

    I sold a few books and a scanner. It was nice to meet folks. Also, it was good exercise loading, unloading and reloading the car. Thanks for the opportunity.

    March 16, 2013

  • Gene P.

    It was fun to get together. Didn't sell a thing, but found something that I had to have, a Nikon Coolscan for a great price. FYI Hamerick VueScan makes it work with Win 7.

    March 16, 2013

  • Big G.

    It was a lot of fun, but not as many buyers showed as I'm sure we all would have liked.

    March 16, 2013

  • Gene P.

    Partial List of What I am Bringing:
    Nikon D1x DSLR DX Camera Body, AC Adaptor & SB-80DX Speedlight for D1x

  • Dee Dee M.

    Is it possible to bring just a couple or so items for sale without having a table?

    March 6, 2013

    • John G.

      I don't anticipate having a lot of stuff, so I'm certainly willing to share my space.

    • Dee Dee M.

      Thanks!

      March 14, 2013

  • Archie

    Any one looking to sell a nikon 35-70 f2.8?

    March 14, 2013

    • John G.

      I've got a 28-70 f2.8. I've had it for many years and have thought about replacing it. Probably in the $700 range.

      March 14, 2013

  • Frank I.

    I'll be there as a seller/swapper and will bring my own table. Lots of photography books, unused like new Nodal Ninja 3, bags, cameras, and misc. BTW, will add a photo to profile as soon as I find my face.

    March 13, 2013

    I'll be there as a buyer.

    March 13, 2013

  • Big G.

    I've posted an ad in the Olympian and on Craigslist. I'm not sure what all I'll be bringing, probably some flash and strobe lights and some Olympus doodads. I'll bring some stickers to put prices on items.

    March 13, 2013

  • Colleen E.

    Dale will be bringing my stuff since I'm in Alaska.

    March 12, 2013

  • David O.

    Want to set up a wet darkroom? Will have enlarger, trays, print washers, developing tanks etc. for sale. Also have Mamiya TLR w/3 lenses if you're drooling for 2 1/4 by 2 1/4 negs.

    March 10, 2013

  • Lisa Cramer von C.

    I will be there and wish I could buy but I would be in trouble. Was wanting no needing to part with a camera outfit I have now. Anyone interested in a 20d?

    March 6, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      Might be interested in that 20d.

      March 7, 2013

  • John G.

    I'm certainly interested in the cable. I've done some tethered shooting and have a 16 foot cable and it's not long enough.

    March 6, 2013

    • Sherman S.

      John you can contact me direct[masked]

      March 6, 2013

  • Robert M.

    I am not selling but plan to attend.

    March 6, 2013

  • Sherman S.

    don't know if I will make the swap... but if any of the members are looking to do tethering? I have 33 foot usb 2.0 active repeaters that you plug your original or usb cord into for 33ft+ tethering. I use mine with my 15ft cord... 48 feet is nice to move around with

    asking $20

    March 5, 2013

  • Scott

    I'm planning to be there as a buyer (and perhaps bring a couple things to sell as well, but won't need a table)

    March 2, 2013

  • Nahaci

    Oh nooo! I just noticed the date changed. Now I don't believe I can attend :( Oh well, I will just have to catch up with this group at a later time.

    March 1, 2013

  • Daniel G. B.

    I'll be there as a buyer.

    February 28, 2013

  • Ken M.

    I plan to attend - to check out available gear and meet members. I'm a new member.

    February 22, 2013

    • Big G.

      Ken - please let us know if you want to have a table to sell gear, that is what the RSVP's are for. All are welcome to attend.

      February 27, 2013

    • David O.

      I'm coming and will use a table--wet darkroom stuff mostly Anyone longing for a Mamiya TLR system?

      February 28, 2013

  • Dee Dee M.

    Sounds fun!
    I would like to come as a lookie-loo/buyer...I'm guessing the 20 attendees you mean sellers?

    February 27, 2013

    • Big G.

      Anyone is welcome to come to look/buy, the RSVP's are ONLY for those that want a table.

      February 28, 2013

  • Big G.

    I have changed the RSVP limit to 20 attendees. There are only 10 tables, with 2 people per table. If you would like to attend AND can bring a table, we do have room to set up more tables. Please send me a message.

    February 27, 2013

    • Ken M.

      I also am not coming as a seller - meet, greet, browse, maybe buy - so if I'm listed for a table release that space.

      February 27, 2013

    • Big G.

      Ken, Please change your RSVP to not going then. Thanks!

      February 28, 2013

  • Heather N.

    I plan to attend to look. I do have a[masked]mm Canon lens and Yongnuo Flash that I would like to sale but not enough to warrant a table :(

    February 27, 2013

    • Big G.

      Everyone is welcome to attend. If it's just one item, you might be able to get someone to trade you for something, or buy it from you. Which Yongnuo flash do you have?

      February 27, 2013

  • Daniel G. B.

    I plan to attend as a buyer, not as a seller.

    February 23, 2013

  • John G.

    Is that cost per person per table? Or for the whole event?

    February 22, 2013

    • Big G.

      That is the TOTAL cost to place a classified ad in the Olympian.

      February 22, 2013

  • Big G.

    There are 12 tables available, and we should be able to get 2 photographers to a table. We'll place an ad on Craigslist and we can discuss getting an ad in the daily Olympian at our meeting next week. Cost is approximately $20 - $30.

    We'd like to have some snacks for each other and buyers/lookers. Bring some donuts, cookies, soda, etc. if you can.

    Look forward to meeting others from the group

    February 20, 2013

  • Daniel G. B.

    Depends on the date, but I'll try to make it to the Swap Meet.

    February 18, 2013

  • Scott

    I'm definitely interested! Will watch for time and place... There are probably some like me who don't have enough stuff to sell to justify a whole table, so a more informal setting (without a table fee) would be good.

    February 15, 2013

  • Gene P.

    I think that if word got around, this could work. Like Colleen says, we would need a covered area, preferably with tables. Is there enough interest to rent a space? .... and charge $5 or $10/table?

    I checked out here at Carlyon Beach ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/Carlyon-Beach/157653114259869 ) and our clubhouse would definitely handle it, but the cost would be $200! I don't think that cost would be feasible and it's a distance from town .... but might attract Shelton people too.

    February 15, 2013

    • Big G.

      Gene - I have a tough time getting my friends to come visit me out here, I think it wouldn't be the best possible location. We have free meeting space that the meetup group uses and it is in Lacey. I think we could probably get that space. I can check. Would we limit this to the camera clubs, or try to publicize it - perhaps craigslist, the daily O, etc. We did something like this a couple of years ago at a member's home. We had a pretty good turnout and it was a lot of fun to hang out with everyone.

      February 15, 2013

    • Gene P.

      Greg et al - I don't see a need to make it an "official" club thing. If we did it would need to be run by our board. I posted an inquiry on our Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.c...­ ) to measure interest. It occurred to me that we might be able to use the clubhouse at Edge Lake Mobile Home Park ( http://g.co/maps/uwq2...­ ) that we use for our Critique meetings. I believe that it's larger and brighter than the room that you mentioned. We would need to check.

      February 15, 2013

  • Heather N.

    Yes if date and location are good!!

    February 15, 2013

  • Colleen E.

    Great idea, but lets try to do it inside so we're not too dependent on weather. A large garage would be ok. . . or bring an easy-up and table. I'll need to know the date before committing since I'm gone almost all of March, but I'm definitely interested. Might be best if we did it after it warms up a bit, which would also give us time to round up all our unused stuff.

    February 14, 2013

  • Gene P.

    This is news to me and the Olympia Camera Club!

    February 14, 2013

  • John G.

    It depends on where and when.

    February 14, 2013

  • David O.

    When, where?

    February 14, 2013

  • CHRISTINE H.

    It kind of depends on the date. and where it is, but I'll sure give it a 100% effort.
